Trippy's Family Reunion

Trippy and Ancestor at Google
Originally uploaded by dblume.

On Computer Camp's second excursion day, we visited Google and Yahoo. (Note, Google can't map Yahoo's address. (Even though they're like two miles apart. Sheesh.))

Google is everything they said it was. Utopia! Not only that, they brought in a family member for Trippy, to make him feel even more welcome. After the reunion, Trippy enjoyed a nice swim. This was Trippy's favorite visit.

Poor Yahoo. Nothing could follow Google. Yahoo is right next to a top secret Lockheed Martin facility, where they flew UFOs around for Trippy. But Trippy just watched it all with a glazed expression. He was unmoved.

Trippy phoned me in the middle of the night (collect) begging to come home. He claimed you were giving him 50's asylum-style hydrotherapy. Keep up the good work.

He did, eh? Luckily, I've got photographic evidence of what else he was doing that night. Hint: Did you hear music in the background? We're considering expulsion. More later...

Did he invite the big brother at Google to come home?

He seemed awestruck. He wore this unnerving grin for the rest of the day. I, however, had to be dragged away from Google by security, while I cried and clawed at the gold-lined pavement. Microsoft in the '80 has nothing on Google now.
